Mogilev’s central square – Lenin Square is now witnessing final stages of New Year preparations, the housing and utilities authority told Interfax-West.
The backbone of the city’s major New Year Tree erected in the central square is a metal carcass 22 metres high, with over 100 small fur trees attached.
At the bottom, the New Year Tree is 10 metres wide. The tree will be decorated with glowing balls. Not only the New Year will be glowing from inside, the trees in the streets adjacent to the square will be decorated with lights.
The decorations will be there to make the city streets into a fairy-tale until January 14 – the old style New Year (before the 20th century, Belarus would celebrate the New Year two weeks later than Europe).
